back to my regular schedule

Christmas has come and gone and now another year has begun. *sigh
i'm not ready! why can't we just have a week between Dec 31 and Jan 1 that is a "week of catch up". just to be able to get done a few things that you swore you'd be getting done before the ball dropped and didn't. wouldn't that be nice!?!

speaking of the ball dropping, my sherry lives in NYC now and was there! one of the crazy 2 million. SO jealous! can you imagine!?! i mean, this is the stuff we've been watching on the tube all our lives - and she was there! actually there in the midst of it all!! forgive this small town Texas girl for being so giddy - this is big-time excitement, ya'll!

sitting here thinking about it (the coming of a new year), i wonder why i'm just not 'feelin' it'. i think it's because winter hasn't started here yet. i mean we've had cold and really cold and 2 days of snow. but nothing substantial. not like we usually get. it comes and goes. it was 68 yesterday! there have been no snowmen! no snow ice cream. no kids outside playing until it's just too much and the chill brings them in with teary eyes from the pain in their fingers... which, of course, i immediately rescue them from with hot cocoa and a warm fire
MUST be global warming (read that with as much sarcasm as you can--- sorry folks, just not a believer). anyhow, so that's that. ooooh wait, nope, not done yet. it rained yesterd. huh? just odd.

what was the big hit on Christmas morning at your place?
here? the wii

the wii

the girl also got high school musical 'sing it!' which has so far been a major hit. everyone loves it. we all did a little karaoke last night between dinner and baths. fun fun
just looky at her with aunt chelle

alrighty, well gotta go get dinner ready.
on for tonight: Stuffed bell peppers and potato casserole mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Oh my gosh!
We got our wii early last year and we just can't get enough of it.
I praise it for it's incredible skill of bringing the family together.
We have never been closer.
(Wait a minute. Is that sad, or what??)
